I'll fix it guys.

I called the pick of Cam, Keek, Norman just in the last 2 years as locks.

I'm going to get a job in being a beat writer tomorrow. I'll be hired as the Panthers GM in about 10 years from there. I'm bringing my Playstation.

I wish they would hire him full time for the next 5 years and let him groom a replacement like he did with the NYG.

One thing for sure, if you really look into Marc Ross, I think you will find that you hope he DOESN"T get the job

i'm just glad we hired someone with a respectable team and not the browns or something like that.

this guy comes with enough clout and respect as well as enough knowledge within the league to get a good hire.

having JR outsource this was a brilliant idea.


That moment when you realize ERnie Accorsi was a part of the Browns organization before the Giants, so yea, ANOTHER BROWN

If you look at his draft record, whom he has scouted, you will find its very unimpressive. He can only be credited with the 2008-2012 draft. JPP is the only one on there that is a home run. I will give him JPP and Victor Cruz, that is all. Just hope we land someone with a better track record

this is a really good sign, btw.

the guy knows what's needed.

curious what his ties are to the panthers/charlotte/richardson. i hope very little.


Acorsi worked for The Charlotte News.

Like Marty Hurney, Accorsi has a background in journalism. Accorsi is a former reporter for the Charlotte News.

Accorsi has a winning background. He's well respected in league office, natural fit with Jerry Richardson. Have known each other a while.

Wow another reporter. We should just get it over with and hire Joe Person.

we aren't hiring him from the browns. in fact he hasn't been a part of them since the early 90's. when he was there, they had one of their few respectable runs....4 winning seasons in a row...of course then they started going back to being the browns that ended up getting moved to baltimore.

Yeah, I was a little underwhelmed as well

Accorsi is a great, great pick up for leading the search, though. Same guy who got the Falcons to grab Dimitroff, the Giants to name Reese their GM, etc. Good stuff.

to be fair, that's a team that really doesn't have a whole lot of holes to fill. it's been pretty complete for years. they don't get a lot of starters out of their drafts because they really don't have a lot of holes for them.

but yeah, it's not like he's going to be the GM himself, he's going to help us find one and he's not only been respectable as a GM, imo, and he's not only coming from a big market team with a ton of connections, but he's also helped find successful GMs for other successful teams....which is all we need him for.

He also had the same job with the Eagles where he drafted Brian Westbrook and Lito Shepard.
